So I just put new piston and rings valves and springs in my 08 ltr last night. After I put the motor together I put some oil in it and did a compression test. The test was at 120 psi and the engine had no problem turning over. This morning i finished putting it all back together but when i went to start it it will hardly turn over and is acting almost like the battery is dead. Getting ready now to tear it down again and look for something I did wrong any suggestions?

Check the torque on your cam caps! Also cranking compression above 110-115 will cause issues. Do some research on heating and bending the decompression mechanism if you don’t find anything out of place elsewhere.
